Voodoo
Virgin, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)
Sweet and gritty soul from D'Angelo – who takes a huge step into deeper territory on Voodoo – and it's one of the most monumental records of its time! On one level, Voodoo works as a nicely stripped-down session with a very classic soul feel. Gone are the overzealous flourishes that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Godless Hotspot, 2015. New Copy
The fun never sets when Van Hunt's around – especially given the fresh sound of this sweet little album! There's a crispy, gritty approach that's a bit different than Van Hunt's previous work – a way of bringing up the basslines and drums, while also dropping the singer's voice down ... CD

No Beginning No End
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy
A great new chapter in the career of Jose James – and a record that really seems to take his already-amazing vocals to a whole new level! In a relatively short career, Jose's already been turning a lot of heads with his work on other projects, his jazz-based recordings, and his debut for ... CD

Earthee
Sub Pop, 2015. New Copy
These guys have a wonderfully trippy look on the cover – very cosmic, very sci-fi, but also somewhat ancient as well – a style that really does justice to the music that lies within! Earthee's an even stronger set than the debut from Thee Satisfaction – more complex from an ... CD

Ropeadope, 2013. New Copy CD & DVD
Wonderfully organic grooves from Snarky Puppy – a soul combo who work here live, with a really spontaneous feel – and a sound that goes way beyond most other groups in the Neo Soul underground! The liveness of the presentation really comes through – a warmly collaborative spirit ... CD

Ropeadope, 2014. New Copy CD & DVD
A brilliant set of live Snarky Puppy, in all their tightly grooving, though boundlessly creative jazzy soul glory – and it's as great as anything we've heard or seen from them to date! The "Here" of We Like It Here is Utrecht, Netherlands – where they recorded it live (with ... CD

Worldwide Underground
Motown, 2003. New Copy
A nice one from Badu – one with a depth of feeling and genuine soulful vibes that live up to its title, despite the fact that she records for one of the world's biggest media conglomerates! It's all about the vibe here. Erykah rolls her syllables, scats and emotes feelings more than an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flint (CD/DVD)
Ground Up, 2014. New Copy 2CD
A really striking solo set from keyboardist Bill Laurance – an artist we know best for his work in Snarky Puppy, stretching out here in some much more personal territory! At some level, the album's a trio date – with Bill on Fender Rhodes and piano, plus bass and drums – but all ... CD

Okayplayer/MCA, 2001. Near Mint-

Cherries/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 2015. New Copy
Sweet 80s grooves from Social Lovers – a contemporary group, but one who work in a style that's somewhere between the best keyboard styles of the underground artists of the post-disco years, mixed with some of the darker elements of the European scene as well! Had these guys been alive back ... CD

Jungle Mumbo Jumbo
Plug Research, 2013. New Copy
The long-overdue return of Coultrain – an artist we've been digging right from the start, when he dropped off a pile of handmade CDs as freebies to give away in our store! Since that time, Coultrain has emerged to become one of the freshest talents of the underground – through work ... CD

Tell It Like It Is
Muthas Of Invention (UK), 2008. Used
We've been waiting years for this one – and our patience has been duly rewarded! Stephanie McKay teased us a few years back with a self-titled EP, issued after her UK debut (as McKay) – but with this finally-released full album, she really blows our mind – emerging as one of the ... CD

Koch, 2008. Used
A step deeper for Detroit soul maestro Dwele – his third and perhaps best album – a record brimming with the timeless sounds of underground Detroit hip hop soul, while bringing in some off kilter, psychedelia tinged elements that really elevate it to a higher realm! His trademark ... CD

Dwitza (Brazil), 2013. New Copy
Tremendous work from Ed Motta – a record that not only lives up to all the promise we've found in his music over the years – but which also goes way way beyond, and really knocks it out of the park! The title here is no lie, as Ed's a huge fan of AOR modes from the 70s – ... CD
